This restaurant was only 5 mins down the hill from Benal Beach and was full most nights. You should book. We ate there 2 nights,1 from a la carte and 1 from set meal great selections, prices excellent and service friendly and efficient. Well worth a visit

We have been to the El Naranjo ( orange tree) many times and have never been disappointed. Friendly and efficient staff, lovely setting and gorgeous food. The set menu for 3 courses is 18.95 with a bottle of wine per couple, excellent value.

Ate here a couple of nights on a recent 7 day holiday in Benalmadena. Restaurant is only open in the evenings and from 7pm. Various fixed price menus and a la carte. First night my wife and I went for the 19.50 euros 2 course menu, which included a bottle of wine. We both had the chicken goujons starter which was excellent. My wife had the pork medallions and I had the sea breem, and again both were excellent. Came with separate dish of vegetables and we went for salad instead of potatoes.
As we had seen the lamb dish being served on our first visit we chose that fixed price menu on our second visit. This is 29.50 euros for a shoulder of lamb for two and again it comes with a bottle of wine and vegetables and potatoes. Yhis time we had the baked potato which was as good as they come. You could add two starter for a further 6 euros and we had the goujons again. These are hot pieces of chicken with salad and a honey mustard dressing.

Only negatives are that service can be a bit slow, and they do not take any cards, so you need to ensure that you have enough cash. Bit strange in this day and age.

We always have dinner here when visiting Benalmadena. The restuarant is located close to the "windmills" and you definitely need to book due to the popularity of the place. My husband and I had dinner there last night and as always it was busy with a relaxed atmosphere. The starters (I had prawn cocktail and my husband had the salmon and prawn platter) are a good size and we joked that the salmon and prawn platter would be served at half the size back in the uk! We both had chicken for our main course and I chose hunters chicken, which was beautifully presented. As always, the food is fresh and well cooked. We were far too full for dessert which was a shame as they looked delicious! Another excellent, reliable meal, many thanks!

El Naranjo was close to where we were staying so we headed there on our first night in Benalmadena. We chose the 2 course menu for 2 with a bottle of wine and it was excellent value for money. There was a good choice and the food was well presented and tasty. Staff were friendly and the place was very busy which is a good sign. Decided to go back on our last night again and were not disappointed.
